The murderers have committed the crimes, now it’s up to you to put in the time to solve each of the heinous homicides, revealed via 100 puzzles. Using your logical powers of deduction, can you play detective and help put the killers behind bars?

5 Minute Murder features 100 logic and code-based murder-mystery puzzles, skillfully compiled by acclaimed US psychological thriller writer Christopher J. Yates and puzzle expert Bruce Pitchers.

Each murder-based puzzle forms part of a complete storyline set across one of 10 scenarios, including the dreaming spires of Oxford University, the City of London’s stuffy gentlemen’s clubs and the gritty streets of New York.

5 Minute Murder combines classic logic problems and code-cracking with Christopher J. Yates’s crime-writing to create a sleuthing experience that’s perfect for all puzzle and whodunnit fans. If you’re an armchair detective with a 5-minute coffee break to spare, can you crack the case? Just don’t make your answer a stab in the dark!

Praise for the work of Christopher J. Yates: “A new Stephen King, albeit with a British accent.” – New York Post
